This section walks through how to create a new 1-on-1 agenda with someone.

  1. Click 1-on-1s in 15Five's main, left-hand navigation bar.
  2. You'll land on your 'My 1-on-1s' page. From here, click the Create a new 1-on-1 button in the top, right-hand corner of the page.
  3. A 'Create a new 1-on-1 agenda' pop-up will appear. Click into the search bar and begin typing the name of the person you want to create a new 1-on-1 agenda with.


    If you don't see the option to create a 1-on-1 with someone who isn't either your direct manager or your direct report, your company doesn't have 1-on-1s with anyone enabled. If desired, reach out to one of your account admins to request that they enable this feature.

  4. Click Create a new 1-on-1.
  5. You will be automatically redirected to the 1-on-1 agenda wizard. Here, you'll see talking point resources to help you craft your first 1-on-1 agenda with this person. Utilize these resources, or click Start crafting my 1-on-1 to create a 1-on-1 agenda from scratch.
